Edgewell Personal Care Partners with the Dollar General Literacy Foundation for the 2nd Annual Schick Intuition Emerging Artist Contest

Middle and High School Art Teachers Will Be Eligible for the Grand Prize

SHELTON, Conn., April 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Edgewell Personal Care Company (NYSE: EPC) and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation (DGLF) announced the second annual Emerging Artist Contest, focused on educators for 2024. Middle and High School art teachers are encouraged to visit EmergingArtistProject.com to enter their original piece of artwork for consideration to win a one-time prize and the chance for their design to be featured on limited-edition Schick Intuition packaging at Dollar General. The contest will accept submissions through June 3, 2024.

This year’s new contest theme calls for teachers to submit a feel-good design that communicates the importance of literacy through their design. The winning teacher will receive a $10,000 prize, half of which will go toward supporting their classroom, and the other half will go toward the winner’s individual artistic pursuits. Through the contest, Edgewell and its Schick Intuition shave brand aim to elevate creative expression and encourage teachers to continue supporting literacy and the arts within their community.

Edgewell is dedicated to enacting its corporate purpose, values and behaviors, and this contest will continue to support its People First value, specifically. By giving back to the community and sharing the brand platform with educators who directly support, teach and encourage creative expression, the company aims to bring joy to its community, offer support and empower creative expression.
